Bacon Pickle Fries

Football season is coming up and that means snacks, snacks, and more snacks. If you're looking for something that is super easy, and employs items that you already have on hand, then you may be interested in this super simple, super crowd pleasing recipe for bacon pickle fries.

There's really not much to it, so it's hardly worth writing the recipe down. Essentially you wrap one piece of low-sodium (this is very important!) bacon around a drained and patted dry pickle spear. You bake it in a preheated oven at 425° for 17 to 22 minutes, depending upon the heat of your oven, and how crispy you like your bacon. I baked mine for 22 minutes, but then I like my bacon crispy.

Use tongs to remove the bacon-wrapped pickles from the oven, because they are going to be very hot, and arrange them nicely on a plate, alongside a cup of ranch dressing, and a cup of spicy remoulade. These will disappear in a hurry; they are so good.

Bacon Pickle Fries

Dill pickle spears, drained and patted dry
Thin-sliced, low-sodium bacon, one strip for each pickle
Parmesan cheese, optional

Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a cookie sheet with foil, and place wrapped pickle spears on the foil. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, if desired. Slide cookie sheet into the oven, and bake for 17 to 22 minutes, until bacon is desired crispness. Remove from oven, and place immediately onto a paper towel-lined plate, to allow excess grease to drain.

Arrange on a serving plate, and serve with ranch dressing, and a spicy remoulade.
